Canton of Porte de l'Eau
The Canton of Porte de l'Eau will be hosting its sixteenth annual Day of Dance on October 3 in Kirkland, in conjunction with the Barony of Madrone's A&S and Bardic championships.
Your day as a dancer will be spent learning and practicing a variety of dances, drawn from a variety of period sources. Some will be familiar friends of our local dance community; others will be taught for the first time at Day of Dance this year. Some will be great first dances for beginners; others will be a fun challenge for our regular dancers. The planned schedule for dances is below. We are starting instruction earlier than normal (at 10:00am) this year to allow some extra time for beginner dances, and to allow plenty of time for the other activities at the event.
After a potluck dinner, we'll celebrate with the Champions' Ball, with music provided by the talented musicians of the Day of Dance Band.
To find out more about the full event schedule and the championship competitions, visit the Barony of Madrone's site for this event.

Lunch will not be served - bring a bag lunch, or visit a local restaurant.
For dinner, the main dish will be provided by the Madrone Culinary Guild. Please bring a potluck contribution - suggested categories below, organized by SCA first name:
Don't forget to bring your feast gear, or serving utensils for your dish! Be sure to bring an ingredient card, and a plastic bag for dirty dishes (dishwashing facilities will not be available).
The kitchen on site will be at full capacity as the Culinary Guild prepares their dish, so the site facilities for warming, heating and cooling your potluck dish will not be available. If your dish requires warming, please bring a crock pot and extension cord; if it requires cooling, coolers with ice will be available (if you would like to bring and/or share a cooler, please do). More potluck details are at Madrone's event web site.
The Barony of Aquaterra's Day of Dance will be held on November 7 in Snohomish.
